In Dei Verbum, the Second Vatican Council asserts the Christian belief that “God, the inspirer and author of both Testaments, wisely arranged that the New Testament be hidden in the Old and the Old be made manifest in the New” (§16). In this paper, you are asked to consider the relationship between the Old and New Testaments by examining how the writers of the Gospels of Matthew and John portray the person of Jesus in relation to the central theological themes and images of the Old Testament. In what ways does Jesus stand in continuity with the Old Testament? In what ways does Jesus up-end expectations that the Old Testament establishes? In what ways does Jesus fulfill the Old Testament? Perhaps the best way to undertake a project like this is to focus on one or two specific themes or images of the Old Testament and how they are related to Jesus. Some possible themes to consider are: The Promise made to Abraham The Law of Moses The Temple The Passover/Exodus Exile and Israel’s hope of Restoration Jeremiah’s and Ezekiel’s promises of a new heart and a new covenant Additional instructions: Paper should be 3-4 pages in length, double-spaced, in a standard 11- or 12-point font with one-inch margins all around 1. Thesis Statement. Your essay should have a clear thesis statement that identifies the theme/image/figures you intend to address and how you understand them to exemplify the relationship between the Old and New Testaments 2. Scriptural Engagement. No outside research is required for this assignment (but any other sources that you do consult should be cited).
